Mother’s Day

{2012} Paxton, 2 years - Weston, 4 months

I had a lovely Mother’s Day! There was no breakfast and bed, flowers or gifts but it was lovely.

While grocery shopping Saturday, John David treated me to a Caramel Frappuccino {there’s a Starbucks in our Kroger!}

I accidentally slept in Sunday morning {due to the rain!} I woke up at 8:45 for the 9:30 service! That doesn’t leave much time to nurse a baby and get two little ones ready for church by myself. We finally left the house around 9:25 and I called John David hoping he wasn’t doing a specific task so he could get the boys out of the car so I wouldn’t have to walk a block or two in the rain with my littles! Thankfully, he was available and got the boys out of the car for me! I also enjoyed the rare treat of having my hubby sit with me during the service {it happens about twice a year!}

After church, we came home and ate lunch and enjoyed a lazy, restful afternoon. It rained all afternoon and we snuggled up on the couch and I nursed and nursed and nursed sweet Weston.

We did decide to venture out in the rain and went to our favorite local pizza place for dinner…yum!

A look back on past Mother’s Day’s:

{2011} Paxton, 12 months

Last year, I secretly celebrated as a mama of two! I had taken a pregnancy test just 4 days before which was positive!

{2010} Paxton, 3 weeks

On my very first Mother’s Day, I had been a mama for 3 weeks!

Babywearing with Weston

How I love wearing my sweet babies, holding them close to me!

Since I have two children, slings and wraps are even more important! I’ve been able to manage both kids by myself out of the house fairly easily thanks to my sling and wrap! (Something I was scared of and didn’t think I’d be able to do for several months!)

A little self portrait…Weston looks teeny tiny, he’s growing so fast I want to remember this short season! {And excuse the messy background, that’s real life with a toddler and newborn!}

Swimming with My Boy



We haven’t taken many pictures in of us in our pool this summer, mainly because it’s not easy to juggle towels, a toddler and a camera (that we don’t want to get wet!) Before John David got in the pool Wednesday night, he snapped a few of me and Paxton since we have none together! {I took at lot of John David and Paxton the day Paxton went for his first swim of the summer!}


Love this shot of my sweet boy! He looks so big in his baby float! {He’s grown so much since his very first swim last summer in my parent’s pool!}


I always said that I’d never have a pool when I bought a house because they are a lot of work but this salt water pool isn’t too much work {thankfully John David does most of it too!} It is completely worth the work and money it takes to keep it up because it is so much fun to go swimming anytime you want to!
Giggling at daddy!!


The Bulldozer Romper

This is a completely silly mama moment but I just had to share!

Last spring before Paxton was born I realized that you can dress baby boy’s in cute clothes! A romper allows you to do this! I fell in love with little rompers because they were so cute (not to mention they are practical because they are a 1 piece outfit, plus they have to be more comfortable for baby since there is no waistband!)

Anyways, I used one of our gift cards to purchase this plaid bulldozer romper in a size 3 months because I thought it was just the cutest thing ever! I loved him wearing it (and somehow I didn’t get any pictures of just him in his precious bulldozer romper!)

Well, at the end of the summer last year, I just so happened to find these bulldozer rompers on clearance for $5 or so! So I bought one in size 18 months (with another gift card!) and kept my fingers crossed that he’d be able to wear it this year!

Here he is this year wearing his bulldozer romper! It is my favorite summertime outfit he has this year too! There is just something about the plaid and the sweet bulldozer that is so cute!!

So stinkin’ cute!!

So now, I’m just hoping if we have a boy this time, that he will be able to fit into these rompers so I can see them again next summer and the year after! 🙂

The Difference of A Year

Posting about Mother’s Day resulted in some reminiscing and looking at pictures from last Mother’s Day! Wow, what a difference a year makes!

Mother's Day 2010

Last Mother’s Day I had a 3-week-old teeny, tiny baby (and was 3 weeks postpartum & still looking a bit swollen!)

Mother's Day 2011

This year I have a 12.5-month-old toddler who’s walking!

I just wonder how different the picture will look next year and how much bigger Paxton will be!
